Richard Erdoes, coauthor of Lame Deer, Seeker of Visions : "A wonderful book
full of magic, mystery and wisdom. It is a tale of the years the author spent
with Lakota holy man Bill Eagle Feather, talking about life and death, laughter
and sadness, spirits and the universe. This book is written from the heart. It
will give you an understanding of Lakota beliefs and ceremonies. It will enrich your life."
Daniel Mark Epstein, poet and biographer, author of What Lips My Lips Have
Kissed: The Loves and Love Poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay :
A born storyteller, Henry Niese has drawn a colorful portrait of his Lakota
Sioux spiritual teacher with affection and humor?notwithstanding Niese's own
hard-earned wisdom?with humility. From this unique memoir we learn how the
author himself has become a dedicated teacher and healer, a man who knows the medicine."
The Midwest Book Review, January 2003 :
"A unique and enthusiastically recommended addition to Native American Studies
collections, and an invaluable contribution to Alternative Medicine reading lists as well."
